For Muslim travelers, halal food is a big concern and is a need, Guangzhou was the earliest residential place of Muslims in China. At peak time, there were over 100,000 Muslims in Guangzhou. Due to the ban on maritime trade in Ming and Qing Dynasties, the overseas Muslims were less and less. Till now, there are only thousands of Muslims in Guangzhou City, consequently, there are not so many Muslim restaurants here. There are two areas that are famous for Muslim dine and cuisine. One is along the road of Huanshi Lu (lu is mean Road, Huanshi Dong Lu and Huanshi Zhong Lu) There are up to 12 Muslim and Halal Restaurant over there, another one is in Shanyuanli and Guangxiao Lu. Xinyue Muslim Restaurant and Wuyang Huimin Restaurant are the highly recommended Muslim restaurants in Guangzhou City.

In most major eastern and southern cities in China, there are very limited Islamic/Halal restaurants, which are typically run by migrants from Western China such as Lanzhou; they primarily offer inexpensive noodle soups only. Northern Chinese Islamic cuisine relies heavily on beef, but rarely ducks, geese, shrimp or seafood, while southern Islamic cuisine is the reverse. Remember the four Chinese characters, you can see it everywhere. Noodle is generally made when you need and making a bowl of Lanzhou Beef Noodle just takes less than two minutes. You can see how to make hand-pulled noodles through the windows by a trained cook. They don’t have an English menu.
